This may be the best John Wayne film made after "Stage Coach" during the early to mid-1940's. Republic was loaning him out to Paramount, MGM and RKO Radio and others during this time and prior to this had put him in some pretty lame productions. This film however is a horse of a diferent color. This is a broad comedy-western with no holds barred and not without some satirical touches of the Oil Rush Days as well. Wayne is light and fun and even sings. The entire cast is a perfect blend top to bottom. "Gabby" Hayes, re-united with Wayne from the Monogram days is in top form. Dale Evans gets special mention for her saucy, unexpected, turn. Everybody on the payroll at Republic and then some at the time are in the picture, and not neccaryily cast to type. This was a major hit at the time and one of Wayne's best period. Academy Award nominated for Best Score and Best Sound. This film has been around the block a few times, but if you haven't seen it, it's a must see. Highly recommended. Enjoy
